BRTC music as been described as “Historic preservation at its finest” (Jeff Echert, The Pacific Northwest Inlander) and this cd strives to be no exception. From Betty Jane to the almost forgotten saying from the title track, many of these songs leave people asking “Where did that come from?” True to form this 5th cd will leave you with something to think about but the journey might also find you dancing, or perhaps even laughing, somewhere along the way. Bill’s voice has been described as creaky - in a good way, earthy, and authentic, and Kathy’s has been described as haunting and spiritual by followers. This cd contains a good dose of both as it is Kathy’s recording debut as a lead singer and also a strong songwriter. In the words of the Pacific Northwest Inalnder “You’d be hard pressed to find many couples more devoted to creating music than Bill and Kathy Kostelec. In the folk music of their Blue Ribbon Tea Company, they tell stories that are impossible to dislike.”
